|“||On Eliminating Dogmatism and Formalism and Establishing Juche in Ideological Work!||”|
— Kim Il-Sung in 1955
Jucheball aka Kimilsungismball is a political thesis created by Kim Il-Sung the first leader of the North Koreaball. Juche is a mix of he Soviet ideas on Marxist Leninist (from Stalin times) plus Korean nationalistic and traditionalist views, it differed from Marxism and becam later it own way as it was defined by North Koreans. The ideology however was heavily criticized by people from all of the world mainly the West accusing it to be totalitarian and tyrannical. Also some people believe that, due to it's nature, Jucheball qualifies as a Religionball.
Official North Korean sources say that Jucheball was created by the illustrious Kim Il-Sung. Kim Il-Sung created Jucheball after his liberation struggle against Japan in 1930. The ideology had as inspiration the Stalinist Socialism from Soviet Unionball of that time that at the beginning was a main guide to it, but later Juche developed as autonomous ideology. Other main elements of Juche beside Socialism are: extreme nationalism as a form of defense of national homogeneity, traditionalism toward the respect and defense of traditional Korean culture. Kim Il-Sung also included elements of Confucianismball in the Juche idea, since Confucian ideas are historically part of Korean philosophy.
The ideology of Jucheball relies on self-sufficiency. The idea is that the only way for North Koreaball achieves true Socialism, is by being fully independent on the political scenario, depending of literally no one but themselves. Supporters of Jucheball believe that all other forms of communism are inherently flawed, and that a truly socialist state can only exist without being dependent in anyway of capitalists or "inferior" communists. Supporters of Jucheball also argue that there is a global quarrel with the aim of destroying North Koreaball, justifying it on the strong presence of USAball troops on South Koreaball, so North Koreaball needs to be fully strong and able to fight against everyone if necessary, that feeling increased since the fall of the Soviet Unionball. Koreans cannot rely on any outside help.
Kim-Il Sung claimed that the ideas of Jucheball were applicable around the world, not just in North Koreaball. The NepalRawr Workers Peasants Party claims that Jucheball influenced their governance of Bhaktapurball. Tokyoball even has a Jucheball Research Centre (founded in 1978) designed to spread international research of Juche.
Jucheball has the best intentions in mind, but his execution (pun not intended) isn't exactly the best. Jucheball is delusional, believing that the entire world wants him dead. In a misguided sense of morality, Jucheball tries his best to protect the people of North Koreaball from the outside world.
